Fab French Ski Chalet, Valfrejus 1550-2737m Part of the Maurienne Eskimo Resorts

Overview

Property

Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Ski Chalet in Valfrejus, Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - Ski To The Door And Brill Powder In The Right Conditions. Transport And Guiding To Other Resorts.

Traditional standalone stone and wood French Chalet. It is peacefully located 150 metres above the center of Valfrejus and the main lift station. The Chalet has off road parking, snow chains may be required. Entrance on the ground level is through the heated boot room to the cloak room again with heating to ensure all ski gear is warm and dry by the morning. Upstairs to the sitting/dining room on the 1st floor, cosily heated by underfloor heating and a very efficient French log burner. Plenty of windows and glass doors to the balcony allow a panoramic view of the resort and the surrounding mountains. On this first floor there is also the first of the four double bedrooms, a bathroom, separate loo and kitchen. Moving up to the second floor there are the three remaining double bedrooms and a bathroom with toilet and walk in shower.

Details for holiday chalet Snow White Chalet, 4 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate WC

This Chalet has been made from stone and wood from the forest that lies just above it - a romantic point to a lovely solid warm chalet with fabulous views. 150 meters below this 4 bedroom Chalet is the village of Valfrejus offering loads of restaurants and bars to suit everyone. Along with the excellent off piste skiing and the 20 pistes to challenge you, there are stunning walks alongside the mountain. If you don't want to ski at all and are just along for the ride, there is a really nice new Spa in Valfrejus and lots of books for you to chill with in the chalet. The Eskimo Region has fantastic skiing for ALL abilities, however Valfrejus itself has limited green runs so you may like to venture further afield later in the week. We are very neatly positioned in the middle of several other ski resorts which are a really easy drive away.

Bruce, who used to work as a Ski Guide in Courcheval, and loves the Valfrejus mountains can be privately employed as a guide and chauffeur.

About the Owner

Hi. We are Bruce and Joni and we welcome you to our Chalet in the Alps. Bruce has skied since the age of 8 and still loves it just as much as when he was first introduced to a pair of skis on a Yorkshire golf course! Joni joined the sport much later in life but does have the occasional exhilarating day! Her love in life is people, and everyone adores her open smiley character.

We have two children 26 and 28, both excellent skiers but both now living their own lives. During the summer we have been living in Turkey renovating an old 50' ketch in order to fulfill our lifetime dream of becoming sea gypsies. We look forward to seeing you this winter and will assist all we can in making your stay a very happy and memorable one.

Enviable Location A Brief Stroll From Lifts

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious Chalet just moments from the ski bubble and restaurants.

What makes this a special holiday, however, is the effervescence of Joni and Bruce. Truly fantastic holiday experience.

Location

From the Owner

Bruce had worked as a ski guide in Courchevel and we had been thinking about buying somewhere for a few years but the prices in the 3 valleys were definitely prohibitive. We found this chalet in the summer of 2000 and bought it for Bruce's 40th Birthday. When we arrived in 2001 we skied to/from the front door for three whole weeks in powder. We have had varied seasons, brilliant good and bad, and we absolutely love the area and the friends we have made here.

Special interest holidays:

Although most people consider ski in/ski out the ultimate for their winter holiday, we can offer a totally different concept which we call the Ski Safari holiday. Why not ski at a different resort every day? Warm up in Valfrejus on the first day, then over the next 5 skiing days try the surrounding resorts of La Norma, Aussios, Val Cenis, Bonneval (and others) finishing with a Saturday Three Valleys skiing day - the entire three valleys from Orelle to Courchevel 1300 and back again, leaving you absolutely skied out! The Valfrejus Tourist Board organise daily trips to a designated Eskimo resort and if we are free we would be delighted to offer you our chauffeur services using our VW Transport Van that takes 9 people plus skis etc to which ever resort you wish to go to. Bru, if he is free, would also like to offer his services as a guide into surrounding resorts.

Travel:

Our nearest airports are Chambery and Turin both just over an 1hr from Valfrejus. Other airports that we have used include Lyon & Grenoble (2.5hrs) and Geneva (3.5hrs). Hiring a car would give you the freedom to explore the other ski resorts of the Maurienne Valley, however if we are available we are very happy to arrange airport transfers and inter resort transportation. For more information on getting here please visit our Chalet web site.

Distances:

0km Valfrejus has a tourist board, ATM, ski shops, newsagent, gift shops, delicatessens, restaurants, bars, a Spa and a supermarket. Modane which is 8km away has lots of all the above (except for a Spa) plus banks, chemists doctors and butchers. Doctors and Butchers shouldn't have been set in the sentence together but... hey. Sorry about that (o:

Facilities

From the Owner

Within Valfrejus, Snow White Chalet is well positioned only a short walk to the lift, restaurants, bars and shops yet just far enough away not to be affected by late night travellers. Within the Maurienne Valley the resort itself is perfectly positioned to venture down the valley to the nearby resorts of Orelle, Valloire and Karellis or up the valley to visit La Norma, Aussios or Val Cenis.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: We do not have a dish washing machine - perhaps next season but not this season. Sorry. The bathroom on the 2nd floor is usually shared by the bedrooms on that floor, it's big and seems to work well. The bathroom on the 1st floor accommodates the 1 bedroom on that floor. There is a separate loo on the 1st floor too. Bruce and Joni sleep on-site in a self contained flat on the ground floor. This means we are always somewhere not too far away and you must feel free to ask our advice or help you to sort out any problems you may encounter. But don't worry, we won't interfere with your holiday at all... unless you want us to.
